Weekly survey: What should be Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first dance?

Through no fault of our own, me and a group of music fans will be in London next week on a tour of rock’n’roll landmarks (it’s our big Flight Centre trip). When we booked the airfare and the rooms, we had no idea that this would be the week leading up to the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19.

London is going to be nuts.

Royal weddings don’t come around all that often and the kingdom is losing its mind. Not only will the locals be wedding crazy, but the influx of tourists will be insane. And don’t get me started on security.

There’s also much speculation on what song Harry and Meghan will choose as their first dance. The favourite is Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” because the couple is said to want something “fun and bouncy” and something that reflects their personalities rather than that of the Royal Family.

Other guesses include something from Coldplay or the Spice Girls. Blech.

This is where you come in. What should be the Royal Couple’s first dance? No rules, no restrictions. Go wild. And keep in mind that Harry is a massive metal fan.
